I picked up curbside takeaway at Outback Steakhouse for my Mum and I. The original order was 2 Filet Mignon's with a Madeira wild mushroom sauce, I asked for mine with sauce on the side, that way I could add the amount I wanted. Mum's order was as it came with Garlic Mashed & Veggies on the side and mine was Double Veggies. Mum ate hers (non-op belly) and I, of course, had leftovers. I know my capacity pretty well now so I removed the items from my portion right away.
What became of my leftovers? They were repurposed...
The veggies became these super yummy Eggface Bites (crustless quiches) that will be breakfast or lunch for days.
Shelly's Veggie Leftover Bites
1 Yellow Onion, diced
2 Green Onions, diced
1 cup (approximately) Cooked Veggies, minced
1/2 cup Colby Jack Cheese, grated
2 Tablespoons Feta Cheese, crumbled
5 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon ground Marjoram (don't omit or sub trust me)
a few twists of Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Saute onions till golden. Set aside to cool. Whiz leftover veggies in a mini food processor till minced.
Mix all ingredients together. Spoon into lightly greased (Pam non-stick spray works great for this) mini muffin tins.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Let them cool a few moments they pull away and pop right out. Makes 24.
